How Long Will I Need Chiropractic Services?
If you are looking for chiropractic services from experienced, board-certified chiropractors, Vida Integrated Health is here to help. We offer an integrated health center that combines expert Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Acupuncturists, and Functional Medicine Physicians. Working with a reputable, qualified Chiropractor can help you treat various issues. Each treatment is customized to your needs.
Factors Affecting Length of Chiropractic Services
The duration of your chiropractic service depends on many factors, from the severity of your condition to the treatment schedule. Your overall lifestyle, adherence to instructions, medical condition, and goals determine how long your service will take.
Our chiropractors aim to help you achieve your goals and recover as soon as possible. Some illnesses are terminal or chronic, so you can use chiropractic services to manage the symptoms. Here are the main factors that affect treatment length:
1. The Severity of Your Condition
Some people seek chiropractic treatment to maintain good posture and increase strength and energy. Most people visit Vida Integrated Health to treat specific medical conditions. You can use chiropractic services to recover after a work, auto or sports injury. Prevalent ailments we treat include back and neck pain, headache, whiplash, sprains and strains, overuse injuries, sports-related injuries, and arthritis. For some, the damage is minor and can heal after a few sessions and adjustments.
Other times, the injury is severe or even chronic. Our therapists will examine your pain and condition to determine the underlying cause. We’ll then customize the treatment to provide the required relief. Our goal is to help patients recover fully and live a full life. Your condition can improve after two or three treatments, or you may need additional therapies to best support your recovery. The service duration will depend on the severity of your injury or condition and the consistency of your treatments.
2. Age, Lifestyle, and Physical Activity
Your age can affect how long your chiropractic treatment will last. Younger patients’ bodies tend to respond faster to chiropractic treatment than those of older adults. The good thing is chiropractic care can benefit anyone regardless of age. We recommend beginning your treatment as early as possible. Regular Chiropractic treatments are a sure way to prevent injuries and stay healthy. Your lifestyle habits such as daily activity, sleep and nutrition will also be important in how long chiropractic care will last.
An active lifestyle with modified workouts can impact your recovery and reduce the treatment duration. Not all activities are suitable for your recovery, so you should follow our chiropractors’ and physical therapists instructions and exercises provided during your consultation. Some exercises can aggravate your injuries and set your recovery several weeks back. Our providers will help you pick the correct activities to accelerate recovery without further damage. We’ll also provide insights on the best supportive lifestyle.
3. How Long You’ve Had the Pain
Chiropractic services offer complementary treatment that addresses specific pains and discomforts. At Vida Integrated Health, we offer a wide range of services, including manual adjustments, soft tissue manipulation, and active release techniques. Our service range covers myofascial decompression, strengthening tissues, class 4 laser therapy, traction, and bone adjustments. Each treatment targets specific issues, but some pains are chronic.
If you’ve had pain has been ongoing, it might take longer to treat. Treating long-term injuries and chronic issues takes time and shouldn’t be rushed. We recommend seeking professional insight as soon as you experience signs of lingering or intermittent pain. The earlier you get treatment, the faster you’ll recover. Our chiropractic services are customized to your needs, so we’ll complete a comprehensive evaluation before starting treatment.
Determining the Length of Your Chiropractic Care
When you visit Vida Integrated Health, our Chiropractors will have an initial appointment to evaluate your condition. The appointment involves discussing your symptoms and reviewing your medical history and past procedures or diagnoses along with a physical exam. Our Chiropractors may take X-rays or order additional diagnostic images for further investigation. Popular examinations include physical checks, blood tests, and imaging where necessary. The test results will determine the kind of treatment needed.
Most patients who visit us receive their first adjustment during the consultation for instant pain relief. We’ll then create a schedule for the subsequent treatment and monitor your progress starting with the next appointment. Our Chiropractors will discuss your treatments/sessions and perform checks during each visit. Some people recover much faster, while others aggravate the condition, slowing their recovery. On average, you should experience improvements and reduced pain after a couple of treatments.
You don’t have to be sick or in pain to seek chiropractic services. The adjustments and manipulations have many health benefits for everyone. You can increase your energy, improve your posture, and release your muscle tension. Anyone can seek these benefits at any time. We recommend occasional treatment after recovery to maintain the results.
Speak to an Experienced Chiropractor
Chiropractic services aren’t a one-time treatment, so we have no standard practice for everyone. At Vida Integrated Health, we customize the treatment to the patient. All our patients will speak to a licensed and experienced chiropractor to review their needs and conditions. We’ll work together to identify what’s wrong, your objectives, and the best way to achieve full recovery. Our specialists are dedicated to helping you live a happy, pain-free life.
